Below are a few cottage updates that I thought I would share. I am sure there are more, these just happen to be the ones I know about (and have remembered) – some are about new gear and some are directly related to the companies.
First up, Suluk46, one of my sponsors, has introduced a small table made from 6061-T6 aluminium, called the “Tulimak Backpacking Table” – which came about as a result of Steve (owner of Suluk46) and myself talking about, back in June of 2015, perhaps manufacturing them, so it is great to see Suluk46 has brought them to market!
There are two models, one with full length slots and one with half length slots.
The full length slots version is 101 grams (3.6 ounces) and the half-slot version is 141 grams (5.0 ounces)
ZPacks is now installing LineLoc3’s on the entire parameter of their Plex tents. My videos on me doing this (and other mods to the Plex tents) have obviously resulted in a lot of you seeing the wisdom in this and asking ZPacks for the same thing… they started getting so many requests for this that they just decided to do it as standard. Oh, they are also, now, apparently cutting the guylines and pre-attaching them!
MiniBullDesigns has introduced a new variation of his crazy popular “QMH pot” (if you have ever seen a video by shug, you have probably seen the QMH, he loves it), called the ATP, which is a flat bottom slightly larger variant of the QMH. Check out this video of the ATP, and here Tinny call me out as a “super super gram weenie” – grin/smile.
There is probably a lot more that has been announced over the last few days that I have missed, so welcome any holiday sale announcements (within the cottage industry) within a comment, if you know of one/some!
